October 2018 Kreators Blog Hop: Autumn Color

I don’t know about you, but this is definitely my favorite time of year. It is also one of the busiest for me. As a result, I have been MIA for quite some time. My apologies!! However, I am once again participating the the Kreators Blog Hop. I am so happy to be in this blog hop with so many talented Stampin’ Up Demonstrators!

October 2018 Autumn Color Challenge

October 2018 Color Challenge - Autumn

This month, we are inspired by this beautiful photo and have been challenged to create projects using at least three out of four colors featured in the photo. The four colors represented in the photo are:  Soft Suede, Granny Apple Green, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, and Gray Granite. Check out what I came up with and then hop to the next person in the list below.

Luminaria Card

In the Southwest, it is a Christmas tradition to decorate with Lumarias. A Luminaria is a Christmas lantern consisting of a votive candle set in a small paper bag weighted with sand and typically placed with others along a driveway, sidewalk, or rooftop as a holiday decoration. Now days, there is a less dangerous way to do this by using battery operated candles. Either way, they are beautiful! Last weekend, I participated in a fundraiser for cancer research in honor of a team member who recently passed away. For one of my projects, I came up with a Fall Luminaria card. I decided it would be fun to do one for this challenge as well. I took several pictures of card, which two sided. Unfortunately, my camera does not shoe the real WOW factor of this card. In real like, it is very pretty.

For this hop, I chose to use Soft Suede, Real Red and Pumpkin Pie. When you compare my project to the photo above, they look quite different. The photo is very vibrant, while my card represents these colors in a muted way. I think both are really pretty but have a very different vibe. However, let me know what YOU think. 🙂

If you would like the PDF for how I made this card, please contact me and I will be glad to send it to you! Here is a list of what I used for this project.
